Damn those are pricey....
I know a little about the GEM from my factory power window/lock install, and they are simpler than I thought. You're best bet it junkyard and likely just tell them you want the fusebox, since it's on the back of it.
In the ebay ad that Nolooseends posted you can see that GEM has the spots for 3 connectors, not all of them do. My XL truck had only 1, the donor truck with power options used 2, the other spot just having no pins.
So junkyard search for a truck with the same options, and year range (99-01, or 01.5-03) and you should be fine. If you want to go the reflash route you MUST make sure that the truck has at least similiar options so that the GEM is physically able to control all of yours ( check to see how many connectors it has)
